Today will be a day that will live forever in the minds of the America people, a day that will stand as the last page in a long chapter in our political history. And with the stepping down of President Barack Obama, the start of a new chapter.
In a press conference, Obama announced the dissolving of the President of The United States of America. Never again will such a political office exist in this nation.
While these words shook the American people to their core, they could not disagree with what the Last President had to say.
“While the seat of the President has long stood as the pinnacle of power for the American people, it has become a redundant seat in our political structure. We have Senators. We have Supreme Court judges. We have Governors and numerous different offices working to serve the America people in the best way that they know how.
“So why complicate it further? Why add to the red tape and political turmoil that we suffer through everyday?
“Why not alleviate the burden on the people by removing a large financial blackhole? Why not eliminate a figurehead that only signs things or brings in bills that Senators or Governors already want to see passed?
“I believe that removing the position of President can give back the people the equal power and responsibility that they so crave and they so need to grab hold of. Removing the burden from one individual’s shoulders, and giving it to the millions of brilliant and able bodied citizens of this great nation, will empower and give us what we all what our of our government: one made of the people, by the people, for the people.
“It is with the irradiation of the Seat of the President, that I bring to a close the long chapter of irresponsibility in our political system and in our private sectors. Now, you are in charge. You, your governors, your senators, your Supreme Court Justices, you all have the power to shape America in the nation you are proud of, not just one man’s idea. Not just my vision of America, but our collective, powerful vision of America.
“While there will be great backlash, there will be refusal to accept this as reality, this is a plan that has been in motion for some time, and will happen. The baton of power will not be pasted from one President to another come the New Year. Rather I will pass the baton of power and responsibility up to you America.
“This will be my final act as President, and the last act of all the Presidents of the United States of America. The empowering of the people, through a peoples’ government, just as our forefather Abraham Lincoln would have wanted.
“Thank you all, and God bless America.”
With that the Last President stepped down from the podium,. It was a powerful and moving speech, the last of its kind.
What will come in the New Year? What will the face of this New America look like? Only time will tell what we will do with such great power and great responsibility.
